    There are some innocent people being held. We know who they are. Hell, release them all as long as you are willing to answer for what they do after they are released. I am not willing to do the same.

    Some in Congress have problems with remembering things they do. Fortunately those of us not in Congress don't! Those impassioned speeches in Congress in favor of invading Iraq are still very prominent in our memory banks, like it or not.

    Yes Ms.P they're certainly are in the memory banks of those paying attention. Unfortunately there are many in society who are not.

    So it's better to keep innocent people locked up indefinitely just in case they might retaliate if they are released?

    What a cowardly thing to believe.

    It's immoral to let murderers murder.

    My take on this? Hillary might actually be planning on running for POTUS again, in spite of her denials, and this is an attempt to disassociate herself from potential problems. I've been wrong before, though, so this won't be a first. However, reality is still reality no matter how much it is danced around, so I am confident she will have an explanation ready, just in case, because I am certain those speeches will be aired again and again, so those that don't know now... certainly will in the future!

    When I was younger I advocated your position. I'm older now and I can't remember why I ever agreed with it. What I do know is that a protector of men that has the power to kill men unilaterally is no protector of anyone. They're just another mindless killer of men and a threat to all mankind.

    Actually, I have no idea how many are innocent. Perhaps you do. Now, if you want to discuss what's cowardly, talk to the man who said he was going to take care of the issue 5 years ago, and has done nothing. It's a sticky problem. Too sticky for the president. Nobody wants innocents held, but the problem has been allowed to linger for far too long. If you think they all deserve trials, then I suppose it would be fine for them to be conducted "where you are now".
